Isn't Princess Mononoke a Shonen? Miyazaki said that the film is aimed at older kids, which pretty much translates to shonen. I know its pretty violent and has a lot of emotional aspects for a shonen but its pretty tame compared to later stuff like Attack On Titan

So what does Shonen actually mean? The article doesn't do a good job of making it clear. In fact, this is a common problem with articles here where tropes are not properly explained in the opening few paragraphs, which are instead taken up with lengthy introductions like "There is x, and there is y, and then these is this trope."

Strategy. I know I'm asking a lot but seems like in every Shonen there is a point, usually right before or right after the main character gets their first power up but there is always a fairly early point story wise where no amount of strategy, luck or even playing the numbers game are going to do anything but piss off your opponent.
